Nine Days in Heaven: A True Story (Paperback)
A vivid portrayal of Heaven and Hell
Just over one hundred fifty years ago, in Berlin, New York, twenty-five-year-old Marietta Davis suddenly fell into an unconscious state, from which neither family nor physician could arouse her. When she finally regained consciousness, she described with almost supernatural perception how angels had escorted her spirit to Heaven and hell.
Her vision made her the talk of the community and a legend for generations to come.
Nine Days in Heaven brings the story of Marietta Davis to a new generation of readers. The nineteenth-century language of the original has been updated for readability, but the detailed portrayal of her vision remains intact.
- Journey with Marietta to the shimmering reaches of PARADISE, where the redeemed enjoy the beauties of the new creation.
- Observe children who died on earth as they are taught the MYSTERIES of God in infants' Heaven.
- Grieve at the PLIGHT of the lost as they suffer the wages of sin.
Supported by biblical references and practical observations, Nine Days in Heaven is more than the fanciful creation of a young woman's imagination. It is a travel guide to the life to come.
Praise for Nine Days in Heaven
"THANK YOU for such insight and wisdom with Nine Days in Heaven. It is profoundly written and easy to understand. I get overwhelmed reading it and at times have to put it down because it is so meaty. I need time to digest it and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal the power of it all to me." Via email, United States
"I feel like I was Marietta in the story - as though I had gone through the whole thing. I am so grateful for this book - it is as though someone has given me a ruby. I so want to go to heaven. It has encouraged me to live a more godly life." JC, Melbourne Australia
"My daughter Alexandra was born prematurely. God let me hold, sing to and comfort her for 90 minutes before she left. Nine Days in Heaven was a big help to me. It has been almost six years since my angel left and when I start to get selfish again I reread Nine Days in Heaven to remind me what her life is like now. She receives more love and nurturing than any earthly father could ever give her. Thank you. God Bless You." J. C. C. 2nd, USA
"I was absolutely and utterly inspired. I am not usually a voracious reader but I could not put it down." Pastor, Melbourne, Australia
